Republican Gov. Larry Hogan has scheduled a news conference to discuss the legislative session, which is in its last week.

The news conference, which is set for Tuesday afternoon in Annapolis, comes as the Democrat-controlled General Assembly has passed about 30 bills to his desk.

The measures have cleared the legislature in time to require the governor to either sign or veto them before the legislative session ends Monday at midnight. That gives the General Assembly a chance to override vetoes they don't support this year, instead of waiting until they gather again for next year's session.

Hogan already has vetoed one bill. It would create a scoring system to prioritize transportation projects for funding.
